  1. Q.21) A unit of mechanical power is horsepower. What is electrical power?
    A. Watt (your answer)
    B. Volt-ampere
    C. Ampere
    D. Both a and b

    pls verify.

  2. Q.26) Tesla is the unit of____.
    A. Magnetic flux (your answer)
    B. Magnetic induction
    C. Both a and b
    D. None of these

    pls verify... some reference are both a and b...

  3. TESLA is the unit of magnetic flux density and magnetic induction, WEBER si the unit of magnetic flux.. dba? =)

  4. Watt is the unit for electrical power
    Ampere is the SI unit for electrical current

    Tama naman yung answer. :)

  5. The tesla (symbol T) is the SI derived unit of magnetic flux density B, (which is also known as "magnetic field"). One tesla is equal to one weber per square meter, and it was defined in 1960 in honour of the inventor, physicist, and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla.

  6. The typical truss configuration used in the installation of an escalator.

    A. 2 section truss (your answer)
    B. 3 section truss (correct answer)
    C. 4 section truss
    D. 5 section truss

    based on my research, escalators are composed of two side sections joined together with cross braces across the bottom and just below the top.

  7. Q.26)
    The first section of water supply piping in a building after the water meter.
    A. Water main
    B. Water distributing pipe (correct answer)
    C. Building supply pipe (your answer)
    D. Water service pipe

    -Isn't a Building Supply Pipe the first section of water supply piping after the water meter?

    please verify :) Thank you!
